    After a 5yr hiatus from my RD350 I got sick of HD's being the only bike you can hear on the road.

    Still on the trailer

    This is the cleanest 1977 anything I've ever seen. 15K miles. $2500. I didn't even talk him down.

    You did well on that one sir! I makes me think though, that I might have a hard time getting $2500 for my very hot-rodded, but not that nice RD350 this spring, as I had planned. Now go on and do some wheelies for us!

    You know it's weird, over the last two years I've seen these old smokers pull a bit of a premium. Not just asking prices either, but selling prices.

    This same guy as a mint 84 KR RZ350 that he said two years ago he sold his other one to a guy from Arizona for $4500. I'd have paid him $5K for it, but he wasn't selling that one.

    and I usually scour the surrounding CL's for RD's, RZ's, H1's, and H2's and either they're priced low and total shit, or priced like this one and relatively clean. If this one had mods, I'd not have paid any more.

    That is a gorgeous machine! Always wanted one. I have an old twin-clyinder 2-stroke Yamaha 305 in storage that is totally complete, just needs to be refreshed. One project at a time...
